Speech Topics

Born in Somalia and destined to serve Islam, Ayaan Hirsi Ali managed to escape her predetermined fate and discover Western values. In this speech, Ayaan Hirsi Ali will share her life story and discuss why she chose to become an atheist. Her New York Times bestselling books Nomad and Infidel are excellent precursors to this riveting and provocative speech.

Instead of learning to ask tough questions and thinking critically and independently, campuses across America are presenting students with a dangerously narrow spectrum of comprehension. In this speech, audiences will learn:

  • The meaning of wokeism
  • Threats that BLM and similar organizations present to the U.S. education system

From her experiences as a front-row witness to hostile, dangerous cultural change, Ayaan Hirsi Ali describes how we can ensure that future generations have the independent decision-making abilities, tools and know-how to preserve the liberty and other values that our predecessors held dear.

Organizations around the world are under pressure to implement the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) framework. Ayaan Hirsi Ali provides a critical review of the current DEI practices and discusses how businesses can ensure the equality of opportunities and cultivate true gender and race diversity in a sustainable, cost-efficient, and fair way.

In this discussion, Ayaan Hirsi Ali describes:

  • The origin, rise and ideological assumptions of DEI
  • The cost of adopting DEI
  • How to prioritize long-term company success over short-term political pressures and activism
  • An alternative way to cultivate gender and race diversity

Ayaan’s knowledge illuminates the measures your organization can employ to ensure your mission and budget are protected and purposeful. This presentation is ideal for C-suite audiences, intimate board gatherings, and any organization looking to rev up their inclusivity values and practices in a meaningful manner.
